The City of Kalamunda (the City) contains a high proportion of natural areas and remnant vegetation as compared to other Local Governments in Western Australia. This so called ‘green infrastructure’ informs the distinctive character of the area and is an asset that requires protection, preservation and management. Maintaining a balance between social and economic development and the protection and improvement of the natural environment is imperative as the City grows and develops.

The ELUPS aims to provide a comprehensive report on the status of current natural environmental factors and influences in the City, and develop strategies and actions to enhance and improve biodiversity and promote sustainable planning practises which are sensitive and complimentary to the existing natural ecosystem.

This ELUPS is prepared in accordance with the Planning and Development Act 2005 and the Local Planning Manual as required by the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) and will inform environmental planning strategies for up to five years.

The ELUPS was adopted on the 25 September 2018 for the purpose of public advertising. Public advertising commenced 28 November 2018 and closed 28 February 2019. ELUPS was finally adopted at the Council Ordinary Council Meeting 23 July 2019 [RESOLUTION 172/2019].
